Asthma is a condition which affects small tubes that carry air in and out of lungs. When a person with asthma comes in touch with something that upsets their air passage, the muscles around their air passage toughens and starts to swell leading to unconsciousness and coughing. Research has proven that smoking during pregnancy increases the risk of child getting asthma. Asthma attack can occur when you are exposed to asthma triggers like tobacco smoke, dust mites, pets, mold, and smoke from burning wood etc. Control your asthma and avoid an attack by staying away from things that can trigger asthma attack. Follow some of the recommended steps in an attack:
- Take 1 to 2 breaths of reliever inhaler (blue) immediately.
- Sit down, breathe slowly and deeply.
- If you still don’t feel better take few more puffs (one at a time).
- Have a Sharp Air Purifier in your home or workplace.
